electoral votes to president obama, brings him to 255 and romney 191. in florida a poll shows president obama leading by 1 percentage point. that's until the margin of error, so we'll keep those as a toss up at yellow. out in iowa -- again these are all polls out today -- in iowa there was a we ask america poll showing president obama 44%. we'll give the president those electoral votes. things are looking better, though, for mitt romney in north carolina. in north carolina the arg poll shows romney leading 50-46%. and a ppp poll out today that shows it all even. so we'll keep that state in the toss-up column. there are 36 days until the election. this election actually despite everything you are hearing it is still up in the air. so don't count your chickens folk. back with us from washington, d.c. is peter fenn, and joining me here inside "the war room," duf sundheim. duf, let me start with you, because of all of the polls that have been out lately there has been some movement of republican money. there have been in fact fox business news is reporting that some of
. (applause) the point is the point is the polls showing romney behind have to be wrong. >> we have a bunch of polls, gallup, pew and-- and uh-- the cnn which either oversampled democrats or at least in the case of cnn, appear to grossly underestimate the percentage of independents. >> there is really lousy sampling in these polls. >> i don't believe them because i think the sampling is probably skewed. >> it is clear that many of these polls are oversampling. >> the polls are skewed. >> i don't believe them. you can go through all the scientific goobledygook you like, i done believe them. >> yes, they're basing this all on scien particular goobledygook which is also the name of stuart vaughn's character in harry potter. professor poppycock goob el dee gook. (laughter) that's very hard to say without swallowing your own tongue. now luckily, folks, i've got my own source of polls. conservative blogger dean chambers, who analyzed these polls favouring obama and then reached the scientific conclusion that they just didn't look right. so chambers set up his own polling site unskewed polls.com w
the president up by three which is good news by the president. has had romney up most of the other polling polling times however when asked are you definitely going to vote for your guy? definitely 43% in the rasmussen poll say yes for romney only 42 for barack obama. i believe if mitt romney does well and can sting the president like ronald reagan stung jimmy carter that he will immediately become the frontrunner and the so-called swings states will tighten up. most of them anyway. florida particularly will. that's my analysis right now. >> i think these state races probably will tighten but that's what happens in the final weeks of a campaign. races tend to tighten. this will be a closer race in all l get closer to election day one senses though that look an incumbent running with a record like this with the economy in such serious shape many people predicting recession with all this trouble he he has been having overseas, with all of that he he ought to be in a lot of trouble. it's surprising to many people that he is ahead. we keep thinking something will happen. is he is not a great p
for romney. these polls -- one other thing. we know that they've middled with the polls for political purposes. when todd akin had 24 hours to decide whether to poll out, there was a phony poll produced by a major polling outfit, wasn't quinnipiac, showin on clr examination, they overexamined republicans by nine points. they're taking the same poll on romney/obama in missouri, they're oversampling democrats by nine points. that's using polls to score political points. >> sean: stay right there. we'll come back and have much more with arnol ann coulter. also coming up, arnold schwarzenegger talking about the affair that ruined his marriage. that's straight ahead. >> my wife was a fantastic friend, great advisor, great mother. my kids were fantastic. the thing that i cherished the most i destroyed by stupid things that i've done. >> we continue with ann coulter and david limbaugh. pat caddell, mainstream media is threatening our country's future. how did we get to be 36 days out of an election and a president who said shovel ready, shovels hitting the ground, and a net loss of jobs in t
governor romney. the only way he'll have a chance at this, particularly when you look at swing state polls, is if he's able to peel off the moderates. that's going to be a very difficult act for him to pull off. >> one of the things people are asking for is specifics. paul ryan on bloomberg tv today, this morning, in fact, still doesn't add much clarity to the tax plan. watch this. >> obviously the numbers add up. we've shown that. let's work together to establish that framework. and it's not as much as what's in the tax code as who gets it. >> i mean, what does that mean? >> listen, i think that's -- it's -- you brought that question exactly as -- and his answer has been part of the problem with the entire campaign. i think they're still trying to come up with this idea of how exactly do we distinguish, how exactly do we come up with some different type of policy that makes you better off. and i think they have not been able to come up with a answer that seems at all cogent to the larger american population. >> now, tad, you actually helped to plan debates against him when he debated the
ground poll shows president obama leading mitt romney 49- 47% nationally among likely voters. >> it's a tight race, a very tight race. >> mark kennedy, director of gw's graduate school of political management says while the race is close, there are bright spots for romney. the poll asked who would do a better job on budgeting and spending. romney beat the president 50- 43%. >> when it gets down to the ballot itself, although he's ahead still on the most important issue in people's minds, he's still behind overall largely because of that likability factor. >> but on which candidate would stand up for the middle class, the poll found the president won 51- 43% over romney, but kennedy says the president still needs to make his case to close the deal. >> i think the thing that obama needs to accomplish is he needs to show people he has a plan for how to grow the economy. >> while the campaigns are downplaying debate expectations -- >> government romney, he's a good debater. i'm just okay. >> he needs to give the american people the choice that we're offering. >> what's not debating is t
they will be addressing. >> that poll shows obama with an 11 point lead and a dusting states but mitt romney advisers believe many undecided voters are still up for grabs and say they will -- mitt romney will hold his message. >> now, your 11 insta weather forecaster christopher's showers, -- your insta weather forecast. >> the showers are fairly light. you can see west of the mountains, the rain is much heavier. all that will continue to shift slowly to the north and east. the pressure is drawing moisture off the gulf of mexico and up to the mountains. it will grassley word to the next day and a half or so. at bwi, the total rain -- a little bit of a deficit for the month of december. it is looking promising. semin to degrees. that is average for the day. 48 for the menlo -- for the morning low. probably will not see temperatures cooling off much at all. i think it will be rain around for the morning rush hour. 55 in the coolest burster is 62 in a downtown bar to more -- 62 in downtown baltimore. even though we will see clouds and showers for tuesday and parts of wednesday, temperatures will continu
director. emily, you look at the polls and it appears that governor romney is way down when it comes to women especially single women. you not about to be swayed toward the romney catch, but if you were, what do you want to hear the governor talk about? >>guest: well, the way governor romney will portray himself is what he is messaging. president obama is coming through with an honest conversation for the american people, another opportunity for a conversation. the president did it at convention and will do it tomorrow night. from governor romney, the only final we saw him be honest is as you mentioned, 37 percent, 47 percent, he doesn't believe he needs to represent 47 percent of the american people. if i were the working mother, and i was part of the 47 percent, if i was a student as a single mother, as a single women, or deployed veteran, that is part of the 47 percent, i would not believe he is there to represent me. >>trace: the president says, sherry, on the specific faces, he is an average debater, and we know he is a good debater. the question is, does he have enough ammuniti
and governor romney. a national poll out today finds that 93 percent of likely voters say they do plan to watch the debate. the same survey finds that president obama ahead nationally 49 percent to 45 percent which is just outside the margin of error. those polled rank the economy as the most important issue. on that, the two candidates are in a tie. governor romney leads when it comes to the handling of the budget deficit. however, the president is ahead on every other issue including health care and national security. we have team fox coverage. carl cameron has the latest from the romney campaign. first, we go to ed henry in las vegas. what do we know about the president's debate prep? >>reporter: they have tried to keep that quiet. we have spotted senator john kerry who is playing mitt romney in the mock debate sessions for the president in the las vegas area. he has been spotted in the lobby of the hotel, with reading glasses and a pile of papers, going through this like it is a final exam and researching every last bit. the president, when he delivered pizza to campaign volunteers to show
day. >> steve, the romney campaign is up against another difficulty in the poll which is the public's actual expectation at this point. the "washington post" poll shows that among likely voters, 55% of them expect president obama to win the debate. 31% expect mitt romney to win the debate. and presumably that expectation will color the way those viewers watch that debate. >> yeah. it could. i mean, maybe this is the one risk maybe the biggest risk for the obama campaign that if the bar is set that high, if there's sort of an even match, if romney kind of holds his own, isn't clearly blown out of the water or anything like that, that people say he exceeded expectations. so what looked like a draw ends up being interpreted by the viewers or the media, or if the media is looking to sell the horse race angles, maybe they start portraying the draw as a romney win. the expectations for his performance were so low, kennedy outdebated romney but the effect of that was mogfied because the expectations were so low. that might be the biggest risk here for the obama people that the expectations
washington post poll of likely voters shows president obama polling at 49% and mitt romney at 47% but among likely voters in the swing states, president obama leads mitt romney by 11 points. 52%-41%. tonight the forecast is president obama will within 320 ele electoral college votes. joining me now is steve and karen. karen, the expectation game has gotten really out of hand this time. finally chris christie, for whatever reason, just kind of gave up and stated the obvious and said well, of course. you know, mitt romney has to be the big winner on this first debate. >> well, i think he was like look, let me keep my credibility in check because he's been watching what has happened to congressman ryan over the course of this campaign. but i think each man has a different thing they need to accomplish. i think for governor romney he needs to have a strong performan performance. it's not just about one performance for him. his problem is a lack of consistency. he's got to have a good wednesday, thursday, friday, saturday. every day to the election. if you see him give one good performance and t
they should have down. the latest "washington post" poll shows for the first time, mitt romney is slightly better regarded on the question of who will do better leading the economy over the next four years than the president? that's through no good offices of mitt romney on his own. that's in spite of what mitt romney has done. >> howard, we have heard so much about the disgruntled folks within the romney/ryan camp. the way it's unfolding in the polls is not good. there's a report that says that romney is beginning to lose donors who were shifting their money to house and senate races. what's going on here? is this starting to take its toll on the campaign? >> yes. in many ways, what mitt romney's challenge is on wednesday night is to stop the bleeding within his own party and within his own camp. absolutely. behind the scenes, republicans are very worried. some are saying so publically. if mitt romney doesn't reassure them within the first half hour of the debate, they are goners. now you're seeing already, a lot of the independent super pacs who are blessed with their own money are going

tight race. >> reporter: the poll asked who would do a better job on budgeting and spending, romney beat the president 50 to 43%. >> when it gets down to the ballot, although he is ahead on the most important factor, he is behind because of the likability factor. >> reporter: kennedy says the president still needs to make his case to close the deal. >> i think the thing that obama needs to accomplish is that he needs to show people he has a plan to grow the economy. >> reporter: while the campaigns are downplaying debate expectations. >> governor romney, he is a good debater. i'm just okay. >> reporter: what is not debatable is the interest. the live audience is invitation only so that means the tv audience is expected to be in the millions. now, between the two candidates, mitt romney is actually the more battle tested of the two having taken part in some 20 primary debates on his way to the republican nomination. president obama, on the other hand, as you know, had no primary challenger and as a result, no primary debates. in the newsroom, tom fitzgerald, fox 5 news. ld, fox >> checkin
, the moment has become a defining element of romney's candidacy. new poll by pew shows how deep these comments penetrated. 67% say they knew romney made those comments. that's of the whole country. of those people, 55% said they had a negative reaction toward hearing them. the only thing in politic that is is worse than voters deciding they don't like you is when voters decide you don't like them. howard, what a great turn of phrase by alex castellanos when voters sense you don't like them. >> well, here in colorado, chris, the obama campaign is certainly not letting people forget those comments from that private fund-raiser back in may. talking to people here, they say they're seeing that ad, seeing the obama ad, that highlights romney's comments over and over and over again in heavy rotation on television here in colorado, perhaps the ultimate swing state. so the obama campaign knows they've got a loaded weapon there and they're firing it time after time after time to much good effect from their point of view. >> chuck, i can't remember anything that's really resounded so well with one side
in the polls. he can keep trying to shift the debate toward those romney weaknesses. in particular, the sense he's out of touch with the middle class. you'll hear the number 47 as often as obama can get it into the debate. >> you think he can come off as aloof. when you look at the polls, the one thing he's consistently exceeded mitt romney at is likability. >> right. yet he does have -- it's partly it's proffesorial. when he looks like john kennedy he's on an upslope. he's not so good when he thinks he is way ahead and konts respect an opponent. i have a hunch he is hearing that from his folks in that room in nevada saying, you can't make a mistake like that. >> part of it is who you compare him to. he's aloof compared to bill clinton. bill clinton has a touch. >> everyone is aloof compared to bill clinton. >> exactly. >> let's talk about mitt romney. strengths, weakness. >> mitt romney's strength is that he is, comes across as competent, as a capable human being. as somebody who projects an air of authority, especially when he talks about the economy. that is the private sector track record
/"new york times" poll has the president ahead by nine points, 53% to 44%. in ohio he leads governor romney by ten points, 53% to 43%. john dickerson is our cbs news political director. jo john, some republicans are areplaining these polls aren't ren'ting an accurate picture. do they have a case? se reporter: well, they have a >>se when they remind us that polls are a snapshot in time and that things can change. howly what we should look at in polls is the trends and how things are moving over time, the orrrents. and right now those favor barack obama. the polls are really more like a painting than they are a digital photograph. one of the other complaints is that pollsters are talking to too many democrats. in 2004 democrats said pollsters were talking to too many oepublicans. it's a standard complaint for the party that the currents are moving against. >> pelley: john, why is there such a difference between the whichnal poll which is lssentially a tie and the poll in the battleground states? >> well, they're really polls of to different countries. the battleground states people erentseen
mitt romney turn this race upside down against the polls as the polls now say? chris christie said he can do it and guess what? mitt romney has done it before. going to show you what happened back in 2002 in a moment. but because of business people like you, things are beginning to get rolling. and regions is here to help. making it easier with the expertise and service to keep those wheels turning. from business loans to cash management, we want to be your partner moving forward. so switch to regions. and let's get going. together. have more fiber than other leading brands. they're the better way to enjoy your fiber. >>> he's mibehind in the polls. and voters just seem to like his opponent better. if you believe those polls. there's no question he's got a steep hill to climb, but guess what? he has been down this road before. and he won an election coming out of it. i want to take you back decades and indulge me. mitt romney, a republican candidate for governor in bluer than blue massachusetts. in mere weeks he went to a five-point winner on election night. and you know something? th
the world series. mitt romney, behind in all battleground polls for the last three weeks, now has the most to gain from a game-changing night. and the most to lose if he doesn't turn it around. as the candidates head to debate camp, rolling up their sleeves, getting down to work, each claims to be the underdog. >> governor romney, he's -- he's a good debater. i'm just okay. >> he plays, barack obama, he plays them well, too. i hate to tell you. >> reporter: mitt romney practicing with ohio senator rob portman looks like he's been getting a workout. the president sparring with john kerry, even chose a key suburb in nevada, a battleground state, for his practice session. neither candidate is known as a great debater. aides say the president doesn't like to talk in sound bites, and can be patronizing. >> you're likeable enough, hillary. >> thank you. >> reporter: romney, say advisers, can come off as out of touch with average voters. >> rick, i'll tell you what, 10,000 bucks? $10,000 bet? >> reporter: in the 52 years since the debates were first televised the first rule is appearances count.

presidential debate where swing state polls show mitt romney has to start making his move. the question is, will we be talking about a different race when we wake up 48 hours from now? >>> scott brown and elizabeth warren had their second massachusetts senate debate last night with brown drawing heat for his answer on the supreme score the and warren for hers about bipartisanship in the senate. the question is how close is this race? >>> and tony romo connects five times with the chicago bears, throwing one away in dallas. the question is, what was his deal last night? it's "way too early" for this.
romney 49% to 45%. that lead is all about the gender gap. in the poll, the president leads romney by 18 points among women. while romney holds a 10-point advantage among men. peter brown is assistant director of the quinnipiac university polling center and joins us from washington, d.c. can you tell from the polling what specifically feeds into the gender gap? are women happier with president obama or is this just an anti-romney vote? >> historically, women are more likely to be democrat, men republican. women see a greater role for government overall. not a single here or there, but overall. they are less tax averse than men tend to be. men tend to be more tax averse. they favor small role for government. in a campaign which role of government and taxes and spending are the key issues, this breakdown is not surprising. what is interesting is that the gender gap has been around a long time. which size is able to maximize its gender better and hold its own among the other? what we are seeing is the president's ability to hold women. he is doing well among single women. quinnipiac did a p
think forewarned a better term. >> reporter: romney's trailing president obama in polls. and his campaign knows the upcoming debates could be their best chance to turn things around. that's why the candidate is practicing. huddled with mock advisers. in the mock debates, senator rob portman is playing barack obama. >> i don't like him very much anymore. >> reporter: as for president obama, he took a break from practice yesterday to visit a campaign office and make a few calls to unsuspecting voters. >> andrea? hi. this is barack obama. how are you? that's right. >> reporter: it was just a brief break for the president, who, like romney, has been rehearsing for days. senator john kerry is playing romney in president obama's practice sessions. the president is out of practice. the last time he debated was four years ago. and, rob and paula, according to the latest abc news/"washington post" poll, 56% of americans expect president obama to win the debates. mitt romney told voters yesterday, the debates are about more than who comes out on top. they are a chance for a month-long conv
that the polls out there now showing mitt romney trailing president obama are a hoax. cooked up to propel the democratic turnout machine. with me to try to get through this is joy-ann reid, managing editor of the grio.com. and political analyst and columnist the great eugene robinson. eugene, we have grown up watching basically back and forth. ever since ike and truman, it's been basically an eight-year thing. you get an eight-year run and people turn you out and try the other party. the republicans, this is my contention, have this almost, i don't mean it literally, monarchist notion, that somehow the executive belongs to them. >> they do like the executive, don't they? >> it's kind of part of what i call republican mythology that this is a center right country, therefore, someone from the center right or further right should be president of this country. now, i think that's silly on two grounds. number one, center is center, right, by definition. >> they're describing that 1950s. >> exactly. >> number two, i think while it's true more people say they're conservative an liberal, i think
mitt romney is leading in all the polls and it's a liberal conspiracy to suppress the republican -- boy, that's something. could it be they just don't accept the legitimacy of a democrat in the white house. that's my theory. they don't think democrats belong in the white house. they'd give the congress away for 100 years if they could have the white house. this is "hardball," the place for politics. >>> well, elizabeth warren is on top in the latest polling from massachusetts. let's go back to the "hardball" scoreboard. in a new wbur mass inc poll, it shows warren leading senator scott brown by four now. wow, 49%/45%. a guess all this making jokes about the indians isn't working for mr. brown. we'll be right back. >>> we're back. one of the hallmarks of our democracy, i might say, is the highest office, the presidency, belongs to no one political party. in fact, an equal number of republicans and democrats have held the office since the end of world war ii, about six each actually. but listen to republicans and it's easy to imagine they believe in their world that the presidency belongs
